As a graduate of the Lansing Schools, I take pride in giving back in hopes that they will take what they learned to help each of them in the future!”— Cecilia, an MSUFCU employee

EAST LANSING, Mich. — MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) is pleased to announce that it recently received 2016 Gold Award Recognition through the American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly Worksites recognition program. The Credit Union received this recognition by offering employees physical activity options at work, increasing healthy eating options, and promoting a positive wellness culture.


Employee participation and involvement in different activities such the annual health fair, flu shot clinic, and wellness challenges helped the Credit Union achieve and maintain its Fit-Friendly Worksite status. Other factors include having a walking path and fitness facility available, providing healthy food options, and offering worksite health risk assessments. More information on the Fit-Friendly Worksites program can be found at www.heart.org.


“Part of the Credit Union’s mission is to help members and employees achieve their goals and dreams,” said April Clobes, MSUFCU’s President and CEO. “By offering an expansive employee wellness program, we are providing opportunities and resources that allow employees to better themselves both physically and mentally.”


MSU Federal Credit Union, the world’s largest university-based credit union, offers a full range of personal — and business-related — financial services to Michigan State University and Oakland University faculty, staff, students, alumni association members, and their families worldwide in addition to a variety of select employee groups. Founded in 1937 by a few MSU professors and employees, MSUFCU has 17 branches, over 220,000 members, more than $3.25 billion in assets, and over 700 employees.
